Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #60– Framing the Images

This week, Amy directs us to explore different ways of framing images. She reminds us that, “Many photographers agree on one thing about framing – that it can help direct the viewers eyes to where you want them to look.”

“The frame through which I viewed the world changed too, over time. Greater than scene, I came to see, is situation. Greater than situation is implication. Greater than all of these is a single, entire human being, who will never be confined in any frame.” – Eudora Welty

“The human frame being what it is, heart, body and brain all mixed together, and not contained in separate compartments as they will be no doubt in another million years.” – Virginia Woolf

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: #21 Splash!

My husband and I went to Spain in the summer of 2016 to celebrate 20th anniversary. The tour covered Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Valencia and Barcelona. We were in Barcelona on the day of anniversary. Most of the restaurants were open for dinner late in the evening but we preferred early dinner. After walking on the street for half an hour, we found a restaurant serving pizza. We had a bottle of wine and a large pizza.

The tour guide took us to a water show at night and we watched a spectacular show with beautiful splashes.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up

When I saw Patti’s prompt for Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up. I know exactly what photos I have for this post.

Among all the countries we’ve traveled, Spain is one country where I spent a lot of time “looking up.” I love the Spanish architecture in general and I was most impressed with the architecture of cathedrals. When we visited the Great Mosque of Córdoba, I was walking with my head tilted, looking up and taking photos to an extent that I lost my tour group. I was panic because that place is enormous. The tour guide took the group to go from one Chapel to the other. Fortunately (most of the time), I could locate my 6’4″ husband. I quickly rejoined the group.

It was fun finding the photos from my Spain trip for this post.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Fountains

When we went to Spain to celebrate our 20th anniversary in August 2016, we had a treat of watching the water dance in this fountain in Barcelona. I included two photos in this post. The third photo was taken in Portland, Oregon last month, and the last photo is in Yorba Linda, California in front of the President Nixon Library.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Windows

This is a re-post I did on January 9, 2017. We went to Spain in August 2016 and visited Madrid, Toledo, Córdoba, Seville, Granada, Valencia and Barcelona. The architecture of Cathedrals were impressive. The stained glass windows were magnificent. These are several of the many photos taken during our enjoyable visit.
